Oh My Goodness, she is a brat

And I say that with love and affection. It's been so long since I had a puppy I have forgotten that they are brats lol. Ruby Roo is horrible for chewing kids toys despite the fact that she has loads of chew toys of her own that she can destroy. Kids are learning to pick up toys but often bot quick enough, than 1 of teh kids (usually my own) will chase her to get the toy which she then thinks is a HUGE game so they run after each other, until one of them tires out...I have told the kids to NOT chase her becuase then it becomes fun for her. My own kid is the worst, probably because she is always the one leaving her toys everywhere.

She was doing so great with housetraining and I was pretty sure that she was close, but she has peed on the floor 3x since Saturday evening, not a big puddle not even a huge deal, but she did so well before what happened?

She has only been here 2 weeks (tomorrow) so considering that she HAS done very well. She will only sleep if she has a warm body to lean against but sleeps so deep that you can walk away when she is asleep. She HATES her kennel and still cries all night long in it, but until she is reliable with not going in the house, she must stay in it when I cannot watch her. It's been that way every night since she came, and nobody acknowledges her yelps and cries while she is in there, nor do we ever remove her until she quiets down, but yet she still cries and carries on ALL.NIGHT.LONG. No exaggeration. If I coudl trust her NOT to mess on my bed, I would take her to bed with me in an nano second.

She has made friends with Aunts, 7.5 week old golden and the 2 of them can play and rough house for a good while, then she comes home and crashes for ages. She was caught by their cat and wasn't impressed when Kitty gave her a swat nails and all, she let her feelings be known by some very loud yelling and rolling around on teh floor, I thought she was really badly hurt, but no she is a drama queen.

All things considered she is a great girl and I wouldn't trade her for anything, some of the puppy behaviours I would but not her.

I totally hear you. I have a 10 week old Toy Poodle and she is amazing with potty,with a few mistakes here and there.

she sleeps pretty good alone in her "play pin" area.

She is affectionate when she wants to be, but otherwise she seems to be more independent.

HER FAULT IS HER NIPPING AND IGNORING ME WHEN I CALL HER!!!!:banghead:

It drives me insane and she is my first puppy, but I love her all the same. I know she has lots to learn. I wish you luck. Just stay consistent and I know they will eventually get it. Do not give in because then they win!!!! They are so cute, but so SMART!

I totally agree. I feel the same way. My baby is 10 almost 3 months and like I said, THEY ARE SMART, but they are still young as well. It will take a while and they will definitely teach us PATIENCE!! Haha. Ahhhh.. puppies....

Haha. I know it does seem that way. My puppy is about 3 months too. I let her take naps with me on my bed, but she still needs to understand that her bed is in her designated area. It is so hard to resist sleeping with the little cuties, but like you said then they get addicted! Best of luck!
